Too Long; Didn't Read
Up to now, the total storage capacity of Filecoin has exceeded 15EiB. Most of this data is so-called ‘junk data.’
What exactly does this mean?
First of all, it ensures that those paying attention to Filecoin are aware that Filecoin has a very stable storage space.
Miners need to submit proofs every day to prove that they are continuing to store data for the network.
This is one of the reasons Filecoin can be viewed as trustworthy: The data it stores will not be lost for no reason so more and more people will upload data to it.
Secondly, before storing real data, there must be test data to test the reliability of the network, and it doesn’t matter if they are lost.
Many people have also used Filecoin for storage, and the experience is still good.
